Transferring to a 4-Year Institution

Admission into a major program at a transfer institution depends upon the receiving institution's requirements for that major. Some major programs are restricted and require special application as well as a competitive GPA. See an Academic Advisor at both SLCC and the intended receiving institution for specific articulation information, also available at the Utah System of Higher Education web site.

Transfer/Articulation Agreements: Students interested in majoring in Communication at the University of Utah, Weber State University or Westminster College:

  • You are strongly encouraged to get your COMM degree at SLCC before transferring.
  • A degree in COMM from SLCC benefits you financially as well as provides a solid curricular foundation.
